Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's 16th Annual Barry Crown Walk for the Animals
Saturday, March 11, 2017


Palm Beach Gardens, FL- (January XX, 2017) Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's 16th Annual Barry Crown Walk for the Animals will be Saturday, March 11, 2017, at Downtown at the Gardens located at 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Avenue, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The League is calling for participants and teams to join the cause.

This is a purrfect time to sign up for the Walk as either an individual or as a group/team.  Whether you are walking in memory of a beloved four-legged friend, in honor of your pet, or to support the animals in general… every dollar that is raised will make a difference to animals in need at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

"As a nonprofit that receives no government funding, the League relies on community support to help us provide services to more than 45,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens every year," said Rich Anderson, CEO and Executive Director of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. "The funds raised at our Walk allow us to continue to offer these wonderful animals emergency care if needed, spay & neuter services, food, bedding, vaccinations, behavior modification training, fostering, microchip identification and, most importantly forever homes."

This pet-friendly walk begins at 9:00am with check-in and registration, live entertainment and free breakfast by Whole Foods Market and coffee by Paris In Town Le Bistro.  At 10:15 am after opening ceremonies, participants will begin their scenic one-mile walk around beautiful Lake Victoria at Downtown at the Gardens (next to the Cheesecake Factory).

As participants complete the route, they'll enjoy pet costume contests with amazing prize baskets at center stage, as well as additional live entertainment, dog agility demonstrations, local vendors, and a fabulous silent auction and raffle area with great prizes.  Dogs attending can also be washed at the Charity Pet Wash sponsored by Scenthound. The event concludes at noon.

The League is calling for walkers and teams to help save animals lives in a fun, invigorating and educational way.  Register today by visiting
